Marc Camille Chaimowicz



The exquisite “Café du Reve” book by the British artist Marc Camille Chaimowicz.
This is a copy of the first English printing from 1985.

Very scarce these days, this beautiful artists book’s content is entirely composed, designed and collated from cover to cover by Chaimowicz in the style of a somewhat autobiographical scrap-book. Each page is designed by hand and illustrated with Chaimowicz’s decorative motifs and patterns that carry upon them his hotel letterhead correspondence, writings and poetry, paired with photographs of objects, places and people – snapshots taken by Chaimowicz or appropriated from magazines.
“Café du Reve” remains a perfect early example of Chaimowicz’s encompassing artistic practice that is immersed in the spatial and emotional experience of environments and décor, literature, the domestic sphere, interior design, ceramics, applied art, wallpaper and textiles.
Highly recommended.
